CAST & BLAST

Wings and Tails, It All Starts in November
“Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the local waters, weather, fish and ducks. He took us out earlier than planned upon our arrival to beat the frontal passage that was coming in and he stayed out with us through the rain. It paid off for us because we landed some nice redfish and black drum. He also knew exactly where to find the ducks on both of our morning hunts... He was such a good fit with our group, it was more like he was just another member of our group, and not “just the guide". - Brian J.

It all starts in November

 

A majestic time begins each year in November here at Bay Flats Lodge on the Texas coast. As our southern shores begin to cool, ducks look to Texas as an escape from the bitter northern winters. It’s a destination where the ducks find ample food provisions coupled with lavish marshlands and vast open warm bay waters.

 

Fall is when avid Texas coastal anglers are yearning for some of the best speckled trout action of the year. At the same time, a lot of them are also having opposing thoughts about the presence of ducks. So, why not mix fishing for trout and redfish with duck hunting? These cast and blast trips start for our guests in November, and typically entail duck hunting in the morning followed by an afternoon of bay fishing.
